Misty & Jerry {Punta Cana Destination Wedding}

I've had the honor of knowing this couple for a while now.  As part of a special group of close friends and family that all just take turns being the bride, I've been lucky enough to photograph many of their weddings.  When it was Misty's turn, she asked, "Would you come to Punta Cana to shoot my wedding?"  I couldn't say "Yes" fast enough.  This is such a crazy, fun, and genuinely sweet group of people.  On top of that, it was the week of my wedding anniversary, so it couldn't have been more perfect.  An amazing destination wedding, a 5-star group of people, my wedding anniversary, and having my wife finally getting to meet these people = one for the books.

Sarah & Aaron {A Valentine's Destination Wedding}

This year started out with a bang with two Destination Weddings two weekends in a row!  From snowboarding in the Poconos to Sun, Sand, and Palms in Punta Cana for Valentine's Day.  I had a blast with this couple and their amazing families and friends in the Dominican Republic for their wedding on Valentine's Day!  In case you're wondering how I could be away from my wife on Valentine's Day in Punta Cana while she endured an ice storm (I was stuck in the DR an extra day due to weather delays...#notsorry), don't worry, I will be back in Punta Cana in April to shoot another wedding on our Wedding Anniversary and she will be with me!  But that's another post...

Josh + Jessica {Sandals Antigua Grande Destination Wedding}

When asked if I would come to Antigua and shoot their wedding, the answer was the fastest YES ever!  We had a great time last fall shooting their country-style engagement session in Durham, but that was just an appetizer to the amazing, intimate wedding at the Sandals Antigua Grande Resort.  

Not only was it a beautiful wedding in a beautiful setting, but I was lucky enough to be accompanied by my beautiful wife since it just so happen to be the week of our 10-year wedding anniversary!  The stars definitely aligned for this one.  Thank you to Josh and Jessica for having us, and for allowing me to photograph this perfect day for you.
